The Ottawa Foodie Challenge is scavenger hunt fundraiser that celebrates Ottawa’s food culture and unites ‘bon vivants’ with a good cause, the Ottawa Food Bank.

How It Works

Teams of two navigate Ottawa to complete the scavenger hunt list, but must record each clue described taking a picture. Each clue on the list has a point value based on how difficult the challenge is to complete. The team with the highest number of points is crowned the Foodie Challenge champion. 

The clues on the challenge list will bring food lovers into some Ottawa’s finest kitchens, test participants on locating hard to find food items and sometimes ask them to devour the delicious tastes that make this city special.  It’s entirely possible to win the challenge by scoring a big number of high-point items!

Want to participate?

The Ottawa Foodie Challenge is an all day event. We'll feed you first thing in the morning at our launch party and we'll meet back up at the end of the day to toast our winners. Tickets to the event are in support of the Ottawa Food Bank, what better way to give back and have a little fun all at the same time?
